Anime Review: True Tears


Shinichiro is a student living in what would be a dream come true for most high school boys, but for him is mostly a frustration. A well liked girl in school named Hiromi has lived in his house for a year along with his family. Her father was a close friend of the family, and when he died they immediately took her in. She is popular and well liked, always smiles, is talented in sports- but Shinichiro knows there must be tears inside her. Having an artistic tendency, he makes watercolours of her and thinks about wishing to ease her tears. Yet he cannot bring up the nerve to talk to her even in his own home. She, too, is quiet and withdrawn in their house, quite unlike at school. Shinichiro is also distracted by teasing from his friend Nobuse for watching Hiromi from afar, a curse of bad luck from a strange girl named Noe, and being forced to perform Muhiga dancing. By helping Noe he hopes to ease his own problems, yet he seems to have difficulty helping himself. (Source: ANN)

To be honest it took me awhile to get myself to watch this anime. Every time I read the word romance I kinda lose interest and I tired to watch it 3 times by the first episode and I close it by the end of the first scene. I couldn’t stand this much drama. until one day I was brave enough to watch this much drama xD.

I finished the first episode and next thing I know I can’t stop watching it. It also became one of my favorite anime!!

The most thing I liked about the anime was the way the strange girl Noe made Shinichiro a better guy. Also, her idea of flying and the way she thinks. It makes you wonder! You have to watch the anime to understand what I mean.

Overall Rate: 9/10

  1. I don’t mind a romance, depends on what kind of romance it is.

    Love Hina is a good example. Didn’t know how I would like it at first but it’s a great anime once you get into it.

    Great review though!
